A couple of years ago when I was in the US I noticed Johnny Rockets’s special dance, and it was interesting, i loved it, so once I got back to Kuwait i asked them about it, and their reply was ‘ because dancing isn’t allowed in Kuwait’. But yesterday INM went there and saw ‘the dance’ for the first time and asked them about it. Turned out they’ve just started doing it less than a month ago.

Thanks INM

 





Have you ever tried getting a taxi at Kuwait’s airport? Di you try getting one at 3am when there was a line that went from here —– to there? Well my friend and I did just that the other day when we came back from our little getaway this past weekend. It wasn’t a pleasant experience getting a taxi in Kuwait, not at all.

Bear with me, I have lots to say. And if I come off unorganized, just know that I didn’t get much sleep last night.

We arrived late because one of the airplane’s “felanges” had some problems and the pilot wasn’t sure if it was safe to take off so he had to return back from the runway to the parking area to have it checked.

We arrived around an hour late and were rushing out of the airport to look for a taxi. No friend no matter how good he is would pick us up at 3am, especially on a working day. The problem was we didn’t know where to look for taxis, we didn’t know where taxis normally line, or if there were taxis at this hour in Kuwait’s airport to begin with. To our surprise we found a waiting line (one that went from here to there). We waited inline and parked our bags next to us. The line was mainly made of expats, and only 3 Kuwaitis: Me, My friend, and one other man who couldn’t wrap his mind around the waiting-inline concept. No matter how many times I mentioned that there was line and he should stick to it (7ajjy ako 6aboor.. 9of bildor), he just kept standing in front of the line and waving at every taxi he sees. Thank God no taxi paid attention to him. (he looked like mar3oob by the way)

The waiting went for well over 30 minutes because there simply were no taxis available. There was also a gap between every taxi and the other that stretched, sometimes, for an unnecessary 5 minutes. It was hectic waiting with all the hot weather and humidity, and it was even more hectic having to keep an eye on the brainless people who were all competing for ‘Man with least brain cells’ award.

When we finally were 2nd in line for a taxi, a taxi driver came along and decided to skip us all and go for the last person inline. The whole line was now looking at that last person inline, all in an attack mode. That person looked around, feeling like he was about to do something wrong, then looked at us. He stopped in his place once he noticed our blazing gazes. The taxi driver then motioned him over while yelling ‘yalla!!.’ That person then decided to lift his bags and head towards the taxi. I couldn’t contain myself and yelled at them both. I yelled first at the guy with the bags, which made him re-plant his bags on the ground, and look at me with bewildered eyes. “wenta ma9adagt nadaak chan tarketh! Mako door o naas 9aafa gablik?!” I said. He said some words that were carefully chosen to sound as innocent as possible. I ignored him and his lame excuse and yelled at the driver to pull back from the end of the line to the front to pick the lady who is rightfully the first in line. The English speaking lady thanked me and my friend and took that taxi.

Our turn finally came. Our long awaited savior had arrived. But our savior was old and sleepy. He also wanted to know where we’re heading before we could put our bags in the trunk. Mar3oob was still there, infront of the line waving for taxis and asking us “entaw lail7een hnee?” The shock came when my friend and I were about to get in the taxi. The driver was asking other people in line if “anyone else was going to Mishref, or some area close to Mishref.” The car wasn’t a van or a big car, it was an old crown victoria. Why the hell was he asking other people to join in!? I, again, yelled, and refused to share the car with anyone else. But the taxi driver turned to me and with the nicest way possible he plead “Laish ya weldy.. khalna entarazag Allah… Afa 3alaik bs.. lik 3alay awa9elkom awal nas… afa 3alaik..etc.” I knew I couldn’t argue with the old driver, he was nice and looked too old to have me refuse his plea. I couldn’t help but shrug this whole situation off and surrender. I went to the car, got in, and waited next to my friend. A couple of seconds later the driver was helping another guy put his bags in the trunk.

10 minutes later we were home. 20 minutes later I was asleep. And then 2 hours later I was getting ready for work.

I remember that I almost drowned once, back in 1990, and I was ‘saved’ by my brother, who later amused everybody by throwing jokes at my expense. I remember that I didn’t yell or scream for help, I just kept flaling my hands in the air as I swallowed more and more water and gasped for air, if you were there and saw me you’d see a kid splashing water and looking up at the sky, you wouldn’t really be alarmed if you were 10 meters away.

That memory was brought about when I read the aricle below. It’s about drowning people, and how they don’t look like they’re drowning. This article must be read, you could save a life one day.

Article:

“The new captain jumped from the cockpit, fully dressed, and sprinted through the water. A former lifeguard, he kept his eyes on his victim as he headed straight for the owners who were swimming between their anchored sportfisher and the beach. “I think he thinks you’re drowning,” the husband said to his wife. They had been splashing each other and she had screamed but now they were just standing, neck-deep on the sand bar. “We’re fine, what is he doing?” she asked, a little annoyed. “We’re fine!” the husband yelled, waving him off, but his captain kept swimming hard. ”Move!” he barked as he sprinted between the stunned owners. Directly behind them, not ten feet away, their nine-year-old daughter was drowning. Safely above the surface in the arms of the captain, she burst into tears, “Daddy!” Read the rest of the article

 





According to IMDB it’s set to be released in october. I personally can’t wait! I loved the first one. I know lots of people hated it, but I thought it was very realistic and spooky. I hope this one stays up to the first one’s standards.

 





Pinkberry is opening another branch at the Avenues mall, near ikea. This one’s going to be a mini branch, a smaller one with no seating area, it’ll be for takeaways only. This is good considering the huge line we see every time we pass by.

 





Now the vuvuzela deserves to be blended!

 





Astronomer Dr. Saleh Al Ojairy said that the current heat wave is mainly due to the dust settling down and a clear sky. It is expected to last for the rest of this week, but the tempreture will return back to normal by the begining of next week.

He also said that whoever says the tempretures are going to rise up to 60 and 70 degrees (BBM rumors) are inaccurate, as these tempretures are only reached in some parts of Saudi Arabia due to direct sun exposure.

I would take dust over extreme heat any day!

Not the normal cow milk this time they got the approval to ship camel’s milk to Europe.

“The UAE is intending to export camel milk to European markets next year, to be among the first suppliers of this product to the EU,” Abdullah Al Janan, executive director for Agricultural and Animal Affairs Department, Ministry of Environment and Water, told the Arabic daily Al Ittihad.”

The Star Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key during a battle in 1812. Restoration of the original script revealed some newly discovered verses that have never been heard for over 150 years. The new verses have darker and violent lyrics. No wonder they haven’t been heard for 150 years, They’re quite shocking for a national anthem.

Some of the new fake verses:
Tear the heads from our foes
Let their hot blood gush forth
Chop their limbs from their trunks
Drag their bodies from horses

So we beat them with chains
Burn their eyes out with flames
And we laughed as they screamed
While we raped who remained

I’ve always loved the American national anthem, especially Whitney Houston’s version.

Note: Never mind. it was just a satire. It was so very believable.
